2021 Podcast “Understanding Eating Disorders” Is Now On The Starting Point’s YouTube Channel

Starting Point Executive Director Loretta Depka Zerbo is joined by practitioner Anne Cavaliere, MA, LPC as she discusses Eating Disorders.

Eating disorders are serious and often fatal illnesses that are associated with severe disturbances in people’s eating behaviors and related thoughts and emotions. There is a commonly held misconception that eating disorders are a lifestyle choice. Researchers are finding that eating disorders are caused by a complex interaction of genetic, biological, behavioral, psychological, and social factors. Learn about these connections, early signs of disordered eating, how to seek treatment, and what you can do to help a loved one.

Anne works with adolescents and adults with eating disorders (including binge eating disorder, bulimia and anorexia, and related body image and mental health issues) to unlock the mystery of their disordered relationship with food and eating, and help them begin their passage towards balanced and joyful lives.

More info regarding Anne and her work can be found on her practitioner profile at Anne Cavaliere, MA, LPC .
